^^I wonder where our local photo bug is? lol *cough* Raymond *cough* lol [poke][hihi]
Have you tried googling it? reading reviews?
05-19-2010, 12:13 AM
i googled it but to read the instructions. ill google it again and read what people have to say about it.
05-19-2010, 12:14 AM
Ok did it myself the camera is only 5 yrs old. Honestly it's not that old, looks like it had way more specs than my point and shoot. I say get it!!
05-19-2010, 12:15 AM

05-19-2010, 12:17 AM

Sounds like a good idea, Oh and I wanted to tell you. Those pics you took of my car on the way to Dallas ROCKED!! I haven't seen a good pic of my car in a while since it basically has no good side lol

Haha thanks. Now i wanna be a photographer like ray ray lol j/k it will be a lil hobby now but once i get a big mercedez benz camera like rays then i could be one. I gotta figure out all the settings on it and use them.

05-19-2010, 01:12 AM
I am probably either tomorrow or thursday. I need to hurry up and get my income tax so i can get my pro dtm bumper or svt bumper and takes tons of pics.
05-19-2010, 01:16 AM
Yup ... busy ... Sorry.
My review ... GET IT ... DONE ... LOL
The camera is actually really good. Some of the Pro-Photogs I work with use the camera for a good walk around one and for something to pull out as oppose to our Paparazzi cameras at times.
It takes amazing pics for what it is. Definitely a keeper if you get it. ... And you will be battling Chuckee for better pics.
05-19-2010, 01:17 AM
I already have the camera in my possesion so ill play around with it, learn the camera and take some fantastic pics.
05-19-2010, 01:20 AM
GET ON IT THEN!!! LOL
Of course ... You now have to battle me on the Photog plane .... hehehe
Just kidding. Have fun with your new camera.
05-19-2010, 01:21 AM
Haha photo battle or what STEP UP lol j/k. Ill get to it tomorrow or thursday. i was taking pics of my dogs earlier lol

bridge cameras FTW! :)

I give you a few weeks and you will be a pro at your camera. Taking all kinds of photos like crazy ... then you will be complaining about your hard drive space disappearing.
I know that's what happened to me when I jumped into Pro Photography ... to give you an idea. At the studio I work at, we have 15TB of space. Yup and 5 left ... after 3 years. We also have tons o DATA DVD Spindles of photos.
I personally have 2 TB of space and 5 100 DATA DVD Spindles full of photos. It's definitely a space hog.
05-19-2010, 01:30 AM
haha wow. thats alot of space but once u take tons of pics the space is gone. yall need more space lol
05-19-2010, 04:15 PM
Well i went to the monument but u have to pay a dollar to get in and i never carry cash so i didnt go in. I took a few pics of the monument and once i got home took some pics of the car. here they are.
05-19-2010, 04:16 PM
Photos look great ... now I need to teach you some composition and later some PHOTOSHOP FUN.
05-19-2010, 04:23 PM
yea Im trying to learn the camera more and i know photoshop i just havent used it in awhile. ill be ur apprentice lol
05-19-2010, 06:01 PM
I have a few Padawans ... I might be able to fit you in there. [;)]

^^"always two there are, no more no less" Yoda of course he was talking about the dark side of photography [giddy]

Where ever I go ill have my camera to take some nice shots of things and my car. I gotta figure out how to make it to where when I take a pic, the background is blurry.

I figured out how to do HDR pics using just 1 picture so here is my take on the HDR pics. U can tell in the first pic that my bumper isnt clear cloated lol. Enjoy.
